“Honda Library”owned by the Theatre Museum
Outline of the Database
“Honda Library” is a list of the whole books amassed by Yasuji Honda, Ph.D (1906-2001), a leading scholar in the field of folkloristic graduated from Waseda University. Honda’s family, after his death, offered to donate his all books to the Tsubouchi Memorial Theatre Museum. They contain his own notes, Japanese books about folkloristic, other kinds of Japanese books, Western books, classic books, videos, audio materials, etc. As for the Japanese books, although they can also be searched for on WINE, we have digitized and made them available for public viewing based on the accessions catalogue (except for duplicate ones) in order to fully keep track of his books and other materials. Of those which can be found on WINE, we have made it easier to access them by linking the title with WINE. However, please note that the purpose of this database is to introduce Honda’s books and other materials to the user, but not to make searches easier for public viewing.
